Font created by MA Culture Criticism and Curation, Central Saint Martins students  for the exhibition  CVIVS. CVIVS is a testament to the materiality of language; the meaning of the latin word is ‘testimony’ but it is also often used as ‘testament’, a direct trace to the past. Departing from the lettering squeezes commissioned by Nicolete Gray for her study and interpretation of ancient forms of writing, the exhibition wishes to provoke evocative thoughts on the defamiliarizing...

The old and well-developed traditions of typesetting of mathematical symbols have become too expensive. A method needs to be devised for unambiguously specifying mathematical manuscripts in such a way that they can easily be manipulated by machines. Such languages, when properly designed, can be learned quickly by authors and their typists, yet manuscripts in this form will lead directly to high quality plates for the printer with little or no human intervention. A second step in the solution...

Technical typography is fully within the capabilities of the personnel computer. Two software packages seemed best able to meet our requirements: EXACT and PC TeX. This report describes the installation, use, capabilities, and results of these packages. Although both packages produce very good results, EXACT is, by far, the more suitable of the two for technical typesetting by general users. This program can answer most publication requirements. PC TeX is more appropriate for users involved in...

In this work, we explore the problem of generating fantastic special-effects for the typography. It is quite challenging due to the model diversities to illustrate varied text effects for different characters. To address this issue, our key idea is to exploit the analytics on the high regularity of the spatial distribution for text effects to guide the synthesis process. Specifically, we characterize the stylized patches by their normalized positions and the optimal scales to depict their style...

Over the past decade, we have designed six typefaces based on mathematical theorems and open problems, specifically computational geometry. These typefaces expose the general public in a unique way to intriguing results and hard problems in hinged dissections, geometric tours, origami design, computer-aided glass design, physical simulation, and protein folding. In particular, most of these typefaces include puzzle fonts, where reading the intended message requires solving a series of puzzles...
